Floating rotors loose?

I recently replaced the front rotors on my Triumph Sprint but noticed when I took the old ones off that the buttons that hold the outer and inner together on each was loose enough to rattle if you shook it. Is that normal, or a sign that they needed replacing? FWIW I replaced them because one was warped a bit.

Mine did that...just used and designed to float. It really depends on the temperature.

Ok, I was just curious. I don't think any of the other floating rotors I've ever messed with were loose enough to rattle. I know the EBC's I put on didn't rattle.

Yeah you're fine. Honestly the looser the better as they seat in between the pads with less friction.

If you look at how it's constructed unless you have some catastrophic failure there isn't anyway or any where the two piece can separate.

As stated above really nice full floaters for a race app are manufactured extremely loose.

Floating rotors is the only way to go, imo. Depending on which rotors you have on your bike, you should be okay. Post up a video or some pictures of the new/old rotors.
